On today’s episode of One Cross Radio, we’re *finally* talking about one of the most spectacularly bonkers and delightfully entertaining adaptations of a comic-book property ever… Japanese Spider-Man.

Join us as we look at the history of this wonderful show; it’s differences from Spidey how we usually know him, the impact it’s had on tokusatsu, and it’s overall legacy. Buckle in homies, it’s a fun one!

Also, apologies for how I sound – I recorded this while sick.
